Trivia

Lynn Lowry initially turned the script down because she objected to all the extensive nudity that her dual role entailed. But later, in an interview, she said being naked on set all the time wasn't a big deal. "Dealing with all the nudity was very difficult in the beginning. Just the idea of being nude in front of all these people is hard. But after you've done it, and by the first night you've spent 14 hours nude, nobody cares anymore. Nobody looks at you anymore, you're laying on the floor and crew people are stepping over your nude body. After a while, it's just like you're in clothes." See more »

An Odd Erotic-Thriller From the Troma Team...
9 August 1998 | by Mike17See all my reviews

Although not a particularly good film, it is still loads better than anything Troma released in the 80's. This is the one of the first releases by Troma, a few years after the laughable "The Battle of Love's Return". Lynn Lowry plays a dual role(and cannot act in either of them) as Alta, a woman murdered by adult film-maker Max, & Julie, an actress pursued by lesbian Camila(the leggy Mary Woronov). It might have been a better film had there been better acting and if a stupid sub-plot involving Max's ex-brother-in-law had been deleted.
